Ask Me Anything (for d.b.)

That’s what you say
when you know
who you’re talking to—
when you expect
the expected and are
prepared to lie—
and clever enough
to keep it interesting.
Or maybe I’m wrong
about you.
Maybe you’re the one
who can speak honestly
after you offer
such an invitation,
even if the question is—
“Would you show me
all your scars?”
